A COVID-19 check-in and update


Hello all,

How is your COVID-19 social distancing situation?
I've been so focused on meeting two publishing deadlines that it's likely I've not been as aware of the situation as you have, although the view from my writing window is simply gorgeous!
What does your WFH (work from home) environment look like?



My heart bleeds for those tireless heroes in the medical field, battling this disease on the front lines, risking their own health in conditions of utter exhaustion that clearly compromises their own immune systems while they desperately try to shore up the immunities of those patients under their care.

There are many, many unsung heroes out there as well: the ones working hard to restock shelves, those driving supplies across country. The pilots risking exposure to ferry medical teams into heavily impacted areas, where they're needed most.

I know it's challenging for those who must stay at home, too. It's frustrating and lonely for those who must remain separated from loved ones. We're stuck inside our homes, learning how to adjust to the current situation.

If you fall into the latter category and are going a bit stir-crazy — and you've binge watched everything Netflix has to offer — did you know Amazon was offering a free two-month trial of their Kindle Unlimited service?
It allows you to read a library of newly-published books across all genres...absolutely free.



All seven of my books are there, and my upcoming Biogenesis War trilogy will be there, as well, once published.

It's well worth the time to see if it might be a good fit for you.

Be well, stay safe, all of you.

<3
Lisa

THE BOOKSHELF:

Sol Dissolution Book 1: Venusian Uprising

This book is packed with excitement, adventure, action, and — you guessed it — some sexual tension between the two!


Of course, we couldn't resist throwing in a surprise twist at the end....

Interested in exploring other stars?

The Enfield Genesis series visits the binary star systems of Alpha Centauri and Sirius, as well as Tau Ceti, Epsilon Eridani, and the red dwarf of Proxima.

Each of these star systems has been the subject of decades-long study, and there’s a wealth of scientific observation available on them. That data has been woven into each book, as an integral part of the story arc.



The entire series is free in KU, or you can purchase the first book,
Alpha Centauri for 99¢ by clicking this link.

ANNOUNCEMENT: New Project, New Series!



Hi all, it's been a while since I've updated here, and that's because I've been working on world-building for an entirely new universe.

Coming sometime this year, I'm launching the Biogenesis War™series, published through Wooden Pen Press.

I have a new Facebook page for my non-Aeon 14 books. I'd love for you to come by and visit! You can like my author page, LL Richman to be updated on all the latest news (or click on the image below to be taken there). Or, you can join my mailing list by clicking here.


What's she working on now?

Well, to be honest, good world-building, based on solid science (and math! Yes, MATH!) takes time.
You also have to consider the governments involved, the cultures, the geographic locations, the religious beliefs, the economic tensions....
All the things.

It usually takes me three months to write a book, from concept to publication.
However, that's with an established universe handed to me, all nicely packaged up and ready to go.

The Biogenesis Universe is another matter entirely.

I can tell you it was a ton of fun to have completed, but there were weeks of hair-pulling frustration as I wrestled with all of these factors, in order to deliver a fully-realized and rich setting for this new series of books.

I'm happy to report this is all done, and book 1 is complete.
It still has a ways to go, because typing "The End" is really only half the process.

Then it must go on to beta readers, developmental editors, copy editors, ARC readers, and so on.
In addition, we have to get a more professional book cover done than the one I've been staring at for the past few months!

Here's a sneak peek, if you're curious about what I've been staring at these many long weeks:



As you can see, it's lengthy, at almost 100k words, or 341 pages. By the time it's edited, it'll likely top that.
